Volunteer Appreciation at MLWGS

Posted on

Maggie L. Walker Governor’s School will host its annual Volunteer Appreciation Dinner on Wednesday, May 23rd at 5:00 pm in the ‘Commons’ to celebrate the efforts of our volunteers this past year at countless events and activities benefiting the students and school. The selfless efforts of our volunteers breathe life into many of the programs offered at MLWGS.

“To calculate the many hours our volunteers donated to MLWGS this year would be an impossible task, but I can easily value their service at hundreds of thousands of dollars,” said Bob Lowerre, Director. “Thank you to each and every one of you for making a difference to the school,” he said.

A special thank you goes to Mrs. Valenta Williams and the GS Foundation for coordination of this dinner and the invitation lists. The GS Foundation sent out over 170 invitations to our volunteers, including to those who serve the PTSA, the GS Foundation, the booster groups, School Advisory Council, classroom instruction, athletics, etc., and received approximately 50 RSVPs. To those who cannot attend on the 23rd, we honor your gift of time in absentia.

Our volunteers make us proud and remind us that community spirit, optimism, and a can-do attitude is a model for all.
